Alternative, short term banking solution, Suits Me, has reinforced its partnership with Contis, the award-winning banking, payments and processing solution provider to enhance accessibility and functionality for its members.
The partnership, which launches in February 2019, will enable Suits Me to offer an Agency banking solution including Direct Debits, Faster Payments, integration with Samsung Pay and Google Pay, and a new Suits Me app. The banking solution will also launch Business Banking for SME’s and a Euro Account in the new year.
As one of the UK’s leading payment cards for temporary workers, Suits Me launched in 2016 and will have over 10,000 members by December – the majority of which are agency and migrant workers who are unable to open a traditional high street bank account due to residential criteria restrictions.
With a Suits Me account, members can receive instant access to wages and benefits, in addition to a contactless Visa debit card that can be used in stores, online and over the phone in millions of locations worldwide.
Matthew Sanders, CEO for Suits Me commented, “Suits Me is the alternative banking solution for thousands of people in the UK, from those who are financially excluded from the mainstream by poor credit, to those coming to work in the UK who do not satisfy High Street Banks Customer criteria and those who simply want a modern straightforward and honest solution.”
“Introducing Contis’ alternative baking technology into the Suits Me platform not only gives these members access to their accounts seamlessly from anywhere at any time, but it also brings with it contactless and Faster Payments capabilities, improving the customer experience for all members.”
“Our mission is to help workers access their hard-earned money fairly, transparently and quickly, and this partnership is an exciting and natural next step for us as we look to continually cement our market leading position.”
Flavia Alzetta, Chief Executive, Contis said ‘We are delighted to deepen our relationship with Suits Me and deliver the latest in payments technology to enhance their customers experience.”
